Narrative: HERE again is licentiousness of topic blended with conscientiousness of observation — patient scruple of narrative as of St. Augustine applied to objectionable matter as of Aphra Behn. The writer having described this canvas elsewhere, in an examination of the fine American gallery where it reposes, is fain to return upon his own thoughts, if not upon his own words, in introducing the masterpiece in another sequence. Against the wall of a bazaar—within whose window a dull - looking Turk sits as shopman, facing a pet parrot, and showing all the patience of a spider in his lair—the odalisques are sunning themselves. Six spiritless women, seemingly without hope and without interest in the future, certainly without shame or protest, compose the market for the day. Two of the captives are standing; one of these is the pearl of the picture, that sculptural nymph at the left, a statuette of ennui, clasping her lifted hands and treading on her garments, possibly in a dream of her Circassian hills; her tresses descend to the knee, and her armlet looks more than half a fetter, her tint is that of old ivory, and she seems as if carved out of stillness, a figure fit to be the Divinity of Slavery. Possibly the lassitude of her expression deceives us, and she eagerly awaits an expected purchaser, like Namouna in Musset's poem. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
